Two sides to every story...
Since when are words illegal? Since when is the "tone" of your voice illegal? Even if he threatened the cop with words, it is still not illegal. Now, if he raised a fist to the cop, THAT is illegal.

He was arrested for a traffic violation.
As misdemeanor charges, most traffic violations require payment of a fine but no jail time. State laws do not allow a judge to impose a jail sentence for speeding or failure to stop at a signal. However, more serious traffic violations, such as drunk or reckless driving, can result in jail time at the judge's discretion.

It is not a crime to even cuss out a LEO, but you can't threaten him in any way.

In 2002 a young highschool student won a suite against the Williamson County sherriffs department when she was arrested and jailed for 36 hours for having a "# Happens" bumper sticker on her vehicle.
